Sorry this thread's a bit late, didn't see one in the queue today. I think everyone saw Norwich/Villa kicking off today and decided to sleep in.

Except for Gosling and Norfolking Chance, of course.

Because football. Also, FFPL

Nice save by Guzan on the penalty early on for Villa.
 
2013-09-21 07:54:09 AM  
God damn it, we get a penalty and Snodgrass fluffs it
 
2013-09-21 07:54:31 AM  
Big save by Guzan right off the top.

Also a fun note: the Norwich City Field Announcer pronounces Alexander Tettey's name as "Alexander Titty". Which makes me giggle.

It is your FFPL report!

img.fark.net



The table topper from last week - The_Envoy - has crashed down to fifth after an anemic 20 point haul. Kevin_atilusa drops one to third, making room for a surging nathanjr in 2nd - claiming the third highest haul of the week. The new leader is...how embarrassing.

A good FFPL week for Toon fans, as top scorer Obamartins raked in 175 with FOUR perfects whilst krej55 used a +90 Banker on MUFC Vs CP to drag in 170.

Scouserduck went down with a -20, an exploding Banker on his team's arch rival making it hurt just that little bit more. Elguepardo claimed a -30, but the stand-under result of the week belongs to Cheesehead_Dave with -50. No insurance chip played - that's how the Real Men play this game.

Bottom three all took -10. Okdaddio claiming last position under Spurs fans ocirats and cameroncrazy1984.  Three Spurs fans in the bottom 6. Eight players under 0.

Five players have the maximum BB possible. Myself, claiming Presidency followed by kevin_atilusa, The_Envoy [silver lining] and Langston. Bolo78 the only Page 2 player with a BB of 15. Bolo78 heads up Page 2, only a tie-breaker away from Sachbash at the bottom of Page 1.

Biggest ladder of the week went to Obamartins on 18 spots. Longest snake Cheesehead_Dave with 17.
Norfolking_Chance probably feeling a lot better about things with a 135. Goomba has found a gear and my tip for a CL spot - Chupracabra_Sandwich - brought in 95.

In other news, last week saw the testimonial match for Steve Harper - the reserve goalkeeper for NUFC for 20 years. Crowd was 50,000 for the game against AC Milan legends, including one Di Canio, P. to whom I'm now willing to allow just an iota of dignity. Match report at:  http://www.theguardian.com/football/2013/sep/11/paolo-di-canio-joey-b a rton-newcastle

There is also an auction of items from the game at:  http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/m.html?_ipg=&_from=&_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ssn=new c astleunitedfoundation&_sop=16 - and I am unlikely to win the Peter Beardsley shirt, alas.
 
2013-09-21 07:57:07 AM  
Called this game 1:1. I think both teams will play deep and play counter today.

And Di Canio was clattered by Joey Barton. Hard to root for either of them in a situation like that. I'm glad that Harper got his testimonial match, though.
 
2013-09-21 08:10:16 AM  
That did not look good for Benteke...
 
2013-09-21 08:10:57 AM  
Looks like Benteke has just crocked himself. Not good for Villa, good news for the mighty yellows
 
2013-09-21 08:11:06 AM  
If they lose Benteke, Villa is screwed.
 
2013-09-21 08:12:18 AM  
Update: Villa is screwed.
 
2013-09-21 08:12:28 AM  
Benteke's groin is gone. Looks like a Norwich win coming on.
 
2013-09-21 08:13:30 AM  
And there it is, Benteke off...I think I can hear the howls across the pond...
 
2013-09-21 08:15:01 AM  
And of course, Benteke's replacement scores not 2 minutes later...
 
2013-09-21 08:15:23 AM  
KOZAK

As soon as Gabby played that back, it was a sure goal. Norwich just unable to deal with Gabby's pace today.
 
2013-09-21 08:15:58 AM  
shiate.

Just shows how good Agbonlahor is.

Words you never want to hear.  Groin is gone

Snodgrass making a mess of things
 
2013-09-21 08:24:40 AM  
Now Basong is gone with an injury. Not good.

Well I had this one 2-1 Canaries.  Blah
 
2013-09-21 08:32:13 AM  
Had this one a Villa win 2-1. I think. I don't know, I was drunk when I made my picks.
 
2013-09-21 08:34:43 AM  
Faaaaaaaaaaaark. The ONE time I don't put a Villa win, aside from the Arsenal debacle, and they're ahead. Goddammit.

Villa have put ten men behind the ball. Lambert wants to keep this 1-0
 
2013-09-21 09:04:50 AM  
Why is Norwich having so much trouble breaking down Villa's defense? Are they lacking a certain touch or is Villa's defense that good?
 
2013-09-21 09:06:29 AM  
On comes Hooper, let's see what he can do....

Gary.
Hooper.

C'mon Norwich, I really need you to score a goal here.
 
2013-09-21 09:21:03 AM  
Just saw Steve Harper's name on the Hull City team sheet, completely forgot he was there now. Hope he gets another great ovation today
 
2013-09-21 09:24:41 AM

Is Sterling dead? He was playing 90 min games just last season!

I've managed to miss every single Villa game result. They win when I predict they will lose, they lose when I predict they will win.

I dunno, but he has the worst first touch this side of Jozy Altidore.

Okay, I have to ask...why the hell do players pull their socks up over their knees?  Talk about a stupid look
 
2013-09-21 09:34:36 AM  
Five minutes of stoppage. Let's go, you Canaries
 
2013-09-21 09:37:07 AM  
I see I chose wisely in skipping this match.

Yeah, you really didn't miss much at all

/Come on you Reds
 
2013-09-21 09:44:23 AM  
Turns out subbing Redmond was a bad idea. There just seems to be a problem with getting the ball to the strikers

Why are we playing 4 centerbacks in defense?

Yeah, I had to look a that and count a couple of times.  we must not be expecting to get anything coming from the back along the wings

Every time Rebecca Lowe says Lioverpool, its a signal that she's thinking about me.

/wishes LFC would sell some of those fantastic scarves he sees in the crowd in their online store
